cry loudly, martyr with flapping ideas
cheers to your rotting words with
limited access, no entrance
beat the cream
spread the butter on
thin vintage breakfast toast
black coffee pending
substance, a burrowing idea
just do it
circumstance divides the brave
i sit where trees breathe
contemplate the warrior’s plea
the penciled-in thoughts
the moan of slanted arms
reaching for the embrace
inflicting a heart’s think tank
with cold lips
high blood pressure
voice, spectrum and limitations
i am holding you
there is a reason for this
there will always be a reason for this
I’m setting out to sea
the skiff is waiting

Good good. Really like the close
*big smile* – Thanks, Mark.
incredible, Ms. Blinkstonport – I got no words!
I guess I’ll have to come over to your blog if I want to read your words, then. 🙂 For anyone else reading this comment, check out Mr. Abdul Ben Camel’s work on myspace by clicking on his gravatar. He’s one of Myspace’s finest poets. 🙂
Ah, there is reason! I like that, hope for that! Nice 3WW.
Thank you, Mary. 🙂
Very well written and entertaining read.
Love the images….like a word collage
What a lovely compliment. Thank you, Suz. 🙂
Sailing away and taking to the sea..now that sounds good..i love the stream of thought..the vintage breakfast toast tucked in there..reading down the lines is like a journey in itself..happy sailing! Jae
Thank you, Jae. 🙂
You will make it you know. Starting out on something new is exhilarating and yet scary. But we hold it all, the pen, the ink, the long nights with coffee and out of the pull to be ourselves, we leave the harbour and keep moving on.
I love your poem.
That means a lot to me, Pat. Thanks. 🙂
Nicely done Mam.
Thanks so much, Anthony. 🙂
MaryAnn, may I join you on that skiff?
Every stanza and thought increases in its wisdom, enlightenment and self-exam. A very prosac parable ~ Blessings dear
Blessings, my friend… 🙂
You can’t have an adventure unless you go. I loved the beat of this poem as I read.
Indeed! *big smile*
A very intriguing poem. I especially like the moan of slanted arms. k.
Ha! Thanks, K. 🙂
Hello Mary, nice to meet you – and thank you for visiting and following SanMiguelAbstractionists – however, you need to know that my role on this blog was to simply set it up for a group of SMA artists – that done I left it up to them to keep the blog alive. Unhappily it seems to have stagnated for now. My personal blog is Art Rat Cafe – johnclinockart.com
I love your personal blog, Art Rat Cafe!!! It’s a very inspiring place to visit. 🙂
Thank you Mary – I have been away and am trying to catch-up on missed blogs – I look forward to exploring your site in more depth soon – thanks again for your visits to art rat….
My pleasure. 🙂
